The Event

Are you looking to step up from a Super Sprint or Sprint triathlon without a daunting Olympic distance swim? Then we have just the thing...

We launched the UK Ultimate 1/4 as a precursor to our 'iron-distance' Ultimate Half Triathlon.

For those of you who find the 1500m Olympic swim a daunting prospect this event offers a fantastic challenge upgrade with just a 0.6mile swim (965m). The event covers one lap of the swim, one lap of the bike and two laps of the run course taken on by the Ultimate 1/2 competitors

The peaceful & scenic venue of Alderford Lake is centrally located in Shropshire on the border of North Wales and is surrounded by Cheshire, Staffordshire, Herefordshire & Worcestershire.

  • Freshwater lake swim with no current and no weed
  • Picturesque countryside cycle & run routes, ideal for PB's
  • Swim start, transition and run finish all within a stone's throw of each other
  • Spectator friendly venue, great for supporting friends and family
  • Fantastic on-site facilities including Showers, parking (charges apply), lakeside cafe, kids play area and camping/glamping & caravanning
  • Finishers medal
  • Prizes for overall male & female winners and age group prizes

Great event yesterday

My first Olympic distance, having spectated last year and planting a seed that I might be able to do one too on such a great course :) so friendly and well-organised and great location for athletes and spectators on all three legs. My Tri -Harder support crew were in fine voice, with their inspirational boards. Could not have been a better day if it tried :)
